on piste avalanche

I was planning to go for skiing this weekend, and accidentally found the avalanche level of the ski resort to be 4/5 (4 is high and 5 is critical). Seems to me the many of Alps resorts are all above 4.

I did a quick search and found most accidents happened in off-piste slopes, it seems on-piste slopes are rarely threatened by avalanche, probably because the resort's management usually closes dangerous slopes based on some real-time report/monitoring?

Do I need to worry about Avalanche if I only stay at on-piste slopes?
